Sheriff Joe Arpaio Defies DOJ and Expands Investigation of Obama Birth CertificateSubmitted by Bob-45 on Sat, 04/07/2012 - 15:22
Ever since Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio announced his Cold Case Posse investigation into the eligibility of Barack Obama to serve as President of the United States, the Department of Justice has been attacking him in any way possible. They charged him and his department with racial profiling crimes against Hispanics and stripped them of their federal immigration law enforcement powers.
When the DOJ charges against Sheriff Joe failed to stop him from releasing the findings of the investigation, which revealed substantial evidence to indicate the White House released birth certificate is a forgery, the DOJ stepped up their attack by trying to strip Arpaio of his power as county sheriff. They demanded that he submit to a supposedly independent monitor to oversee all of the county sheriff’s operations.
According to sources inside the Department of Justice, the use of the independent monitor was a necessary part of their proposed negotiations with the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department to avoid a lawsuit. Arpaio saw this not as an attempt to negotiate but as a deliberate act for his department to be taken over by the Obama administration and thus thwart his efforts.
